Today’s prompt – RAIN

Go . . .

“Rain, Rain, go away. Come again another day.”

“April Showers bring May Flowers.”

“Into every life some rain must fall.”

“The rain falls on the just and the unjust.”

So many sayings about rain.
showing rain’s many faces
Gentle and warm
Torrential in a hurricane
Icy like sleet in a winter storm
Refreshing on a summer’s day

I welcome rain.
I love that ‘first’ rain smell.

Petrichor – “A pleasant, distinctive smell frequently accompanying the first rain
after a long period of warm, dry weather in certain regions.”

I love to listen to the sounds of rain on our RV’s metal roof.
I love rain’s friends – thunder and lightening
What a time they have playing in the heavens.
I find comfort in that ‘after rain’ promise from God.

Genesis 9:16
And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it,
that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God
and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth

Stop.

  2. And I thought of “It’s raining, it’s pouring. The old man is snoring!” I love how clean everything seems after a rain and like you, the smell! Fun to read all the different facets of rain you presented! Cindy
